When exporting dashboards that contain "slicers" to power point, there is no control how the data is displayed.
Ideally i'd be able to slice the data in my dashboard then export to power point and the power point would display the data as I sliced it on Power BI.
Right now the data slicing doesn't transfer.
When exporting dashboards that contain "slicers" I have no control over how the data appears when exported.
It'd be ideal if the export in power point matched the current data slice settings, right now that's no the case.
Hi Power BI team,
I think you just added limitation of 15 pages in this exporting feature, so could you please allow us/users to choose which pages will be exported instead of ask to re-publish report with less than 15 pages and export?
@tringuyenminh92 I agree! It would be awesome to be able to select which pages were included in the export. I think that may help with creating custom PPTX exports...
Hi Microsoft Team,
Thanks for this big debvelopemnt.
Its really helpful for my organization. But its downloading the whole report not the only with filters.
Hope you develop this in your comming release.
I am thrilled that the capability to export into PowerPoint has become an option, however it isn't as valuable as it would be if the slicers applied to the reports would influence what is exported.
The current set up of the reports requires the user to isolate the group (and there are hundreds of options) to view the data and when it's exported for the entire organization, the end user isn't able to view their specific groups.
I'm sure many other people have said it, and you have highlighted it as a drawback in the release statement already. However, i just wanted to say that without the ability to export the report based on user interaction (drilling / slicer options etc) our users cannot really use it. We generally have a company level report, which users then drill / filter to get to their departments data, and this is what they want to export.
I couldn't be able to perform export to powerpoint preview, I was getting the below error when Tried this option.
Please help me what can be done to resolve this issue.

It's worked great the few times we played around with the feature, no errors messages, display bugs or unreasonably long wait times. But it really needs that "in-session interactivity" functionality added. Without that we struggle to find utility in it.
Not working for me I get this error
Great feature and an absolute winner for my company. Small tweaks that would make a big difference:
Anyway great stuff, keep it coming 🙂
I am having the same issue. It worked last week now it doesn't and I am getting the error below. Not sure what I am supposed to do now.
This feature is awesome. But I have found a little problem and it is the regional format. For instance I am in germany and we use this format: 1.228,34 but as I export it to PowerPoint it changes to English format: 1,228.34 or the row of sum (automatically calculated by Power BI) in tables is not more in German but in English: (geman) Gesamt -> (english) Total. There are some more details that could improve but this one is essentially. Thanks a lot for updates 🙂
